Wicklow, Co. Wicklow

Mathematical Gazetteer of the British Isles


Robert C. Halpin (1836-1894) was the captain of the Great Eastern for the laying of the first successful Atlantic Cable in 1865-1866 (the 1858 cable only worked for a month, so was not really a success). He came from Wicklow, where there is an obelisk and a memorial in the church.

His home, Tinakilly House, is now a hotel, but has some mementoes.
